There is ample parking at Snailbeach Village Hall, with is a box for voluntary contributions near the entrance. A public toilet is also located here.

Do NOT drive up the small road to Lordshill and do not park on the mine site itself.

Disabled Parking

There is a small parking space opposite the Visitor Centre next to the headgear. Drive up the hill and follow the road around to the right.  Where it bends left and goes up a hill, turn right along a track.  A short distance along here you will see the headgear on your right and a parking space next to it. Some parts of the site contain rough paths, steps, and steep slopes which may be un-suitable for wheelchairs and infirm visitors.

Tankerville Mine

Stacks Image 115801


There is no parking at the mine therefore it is necessary to park at Burgam Corner, rough ground on the inside of a bend, which is about 400 metres North of Tankerville Mine.

Walk along the road passing the pottery on your left and shortly after look out for a footpath, after a track, on your right which is the entrance to the mine.
